How Can You Communicate Form, Fit, and Function to Customers In Less Than One Day?


The age of simulation driven design is here. Simulation is no longer just a performance validation tool. Instead, it is becoming an organic part of the development process throughout concept and design. Simulation is helping designers create better, more robust designs earlier in the development process, while also shortening the overall time it takes to release a design.

Ambitious and innovative companies today are using simulation to discover new concepts as well as using simulation as an integral part of the detailed design process to get to the right design more quickly and beat their competitors to market.

Innovative Trends in Medical Device Additive Manufacturing

3D printing medical devices

The medical device manufacturing community is one of the leading drivers behind the advancement of additive manufacturing technology- especially in regards to metal printing. We have all seen reports of 3D printed prosthetics for amputees and other similar ventures. However, additive manufacturing is affecting the procedures that are performed every day in hospitals as well.

Consider this: during surgery, surgeons need to make precise cuts. It is quite common for surgeons to use a template or guide to help position those cuts. In the past, this was accomplished with a set of guides of varying sizes that surgeons selected from during surgery in a trial-and-error fashion. Although this process worked, it led to surgeons making less than optimal incisions.
